I am so excited about this new year. I deeply appreciate the word from The Lord that Brother Copeland shared about 2013 being “The Year of Great GRACE.” Be sure to read that word everyday along with your daily Bible reading. It would only take a few minutes, but it would help to get that word embedded in your spirit.
That is a phrase from our 2013 word from The Lord. It stirs my heart every time I read it. My family and I have been blessed beyond measure over the years. But there is something coming that will be a record-breaking, World Cup, supernatural over and above blessing that we have never experienced before. The magnitude of it will be absolutely astounding. The Lord said that it would be “the greatest blessing EVER.” He also said that it is “at hand.” This phrase simply means that the blessing is within reach and very close in proximity and time.
The Lord has been helping me to lay hold of this greatest blessing ever through a simple three step process. It is easy to remember and is bringing me revelation of exactly what this blessing looks like.
1. Mark 11:24—RECEIVE IT BY FAITH
Everything starts with faith—including the receiving of a prophetic word. This scripture says, “What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them.” This phrase in the Greek is translated, “Take it with much force. Seize it with a grip that cannot be shaken off.” Our first step is to receive this word by faith. Say outloud, “Father, I believe I receive my greatest blessing ever by faith.” The process of faith has begun.
2. Psalm 1:1-3—MEDITATE THIS WORD
This is extremely important. Meditation in the Word enlarges our faith capacity to receive the word. If you have ever spent any amount of time worrying, you know exactly how to meditate. Worrying is thinking about the dreaded outcome. Meditating in God’s Word is thinking about the desired result. In this case, the desired result is receiving your greatest blessing ever. The scripture in Psalm 1:3 tells us the result of meditating His Word. “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
3. Psalm 67:5-6—CONTINUALLY PRAISE GOD
“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.” Brother Jerry Savelle says, “The depth of your praise will determine the magnitude of your harvest.” Praise gives voice to our faith, expressing our utmost confidence in God’s Word. This scripture shows us the connection between praise and the yielding of a harvest. In other words, praise will help move things along. The more you praise God for this greatest blessing ever, the sooner you will experience it!
Here is something I want you to consider. This greatest blessing ever is not limited by only a single blessing. I believe it to be a steady, continual, non-stop blessing pouring out of the windows of Heaven. Shout out loud, “I believe I receive!”
Praise God for His greatest blessing EVER!
